Six on Saturday – I Messed Up

Yes, it really is me. It might not look like me, but it is. I messed up. I have been having problems with tagging for a while and WordPress Support told me it was because my theme was obsolete. Not gardening, that will ever be necessary, but the appearance of my blog. Ever eager toContinue reading “Six on Saturday – I Messed Up”

Six on Saturday – Oops, I Did It Again!

In the scheme of things, buying inappropriate or excessive plants is not a sin, but sometimes even I say “where on earth am I going to put that?!”. Only to myself, of course, it would imprudent to say those words out loud. It does happen though. And I am pretty certain I am not alone.Continue reading “Six on Saturday – Oops, I Did It Again!”

Six on Saturday – Everything And

Who invited the snow? Actually it was more of a short sleet flurry here, but I do like to fit in with the crowd.

Unless you are in the Southern Hemisphere and you will be windingContinue reading “Six on Saturday – Up, Up and Away”

This was a family gift to my brother in honour of a special birthday last year and a singular giftContinue reading “Slapping and Slashing and a Little Probing”

Six on Saturday – Acclimatised

For me, Friday is SoS photography day. Yesterday the weather was grim. Valiantly I ventured forth and took my shots, which turned out to be just as grim as the weather. Today it is sunny with yellow threat of wind starting, according to the Met Office, in approximately forty three minutes. I refuse to goContinue reading “Six on Saturday – Acclimatised”

Six on Saturday – Group Hug

After, admittedly rather cockily, boasting of four weeks Six on Saturdaying in a row, I’ve missed two on the trot. Pride comes before a fall and all that. I’m like snakes and ladders on the The Propmeister’s leader board. Still, I’m here now and ready to join in the global embrace that is SoS andContinue reading “Six on Saturday – Group Hug”
